Autumn Term

We are enjoying welcoming the children into Nursery. The children are settling well and they are enjoying playing and exploring, inside and outside the setting. 

This term we are spending the first few weeks learning more about your children through an "All About Me" topic. We will be asking children to bring in photographs, pictures and drawings of people and things that are important to them, week by week. These will be used as points for discussion and to stick into books. 

As we move in to Autumn our topic will include looking for signs of autumn and enjoying the story of the Little Red Hen, and celebrating Harvest. Please encourage your children to look for things to bring into school for "Show and Tell" at school.   

Seasonal celebrations and festivals, 
These will include Diwali and a Harvest Festival assembly, which you will be invited to attend. 
During the last four weeks of the term we will be focusing on Christmas and the nativity story.
